Tony Oxley Project Triangular Screen

Among the most expressive and innovative of drummers, Oxley is showcased as a master percussionist in the vibrant minimalism of this club set that features him in a trio with guitar player Ivar Grydeland and the double bass of Tonny Kluften. From the fractal interplay of "First Scan" to the intensifying dynamics of "Second Scan," this band's most satisfying arc of interplay occurs during the spacy exchanges and lyrical resolution of "Third Scan." The dense interplay of "Fourth Scan" concludes this engrossing live set in dramatic fashion. (Nor CD)
